Be prepared for the only time you actually want to get arrested.
When ski touring in highly exposed terrain or extremely variable conditions, a simple edge slip can become a life-or-death slide in the blink of an eye, leaving no time to remove your pack and grope for your ice axe. With the Black Diamond Whippet Self-Arrest Ski Pole, you no longer have to resort to carrying a ski pole in one hand and one ice axe in the other in these extreme situations. An aggressive stainless steel pick embedded in the pole's grip allows for quick and effective self-arrests, and the two-piece construction with powder basket gives this pole versatile touring performance on the mellow approach.
